Many of the original buildings in the Village remain today.
There was originally a Victorian corner and today only two of the four buildings are still intact. These are on the corner of Mt Eden Rd and Stokes Rd and the corner of Mt Eden Rd and Essex St. They are currently Barfoot and Thompson and Fraser's Cafe. Many of the same owners have operated the stores in the Village over a long period and these people have become local identities.
Ross's Super Meats celebrated 50 years in the Village in 2010 and in 2011 sold this well established business to new hands. Now called Mt Eden Traditional Butchery and the new owners are looking forward to another 50 years in business. K C Loo Fruit and Vegetables closely follow this record, and then there is Mt Eden Jewellers, Mainly Toys and many more.
The Mt Eden Village Fish Shop is operated by a third generation of the same family and other business owners have had more than one business in the Village, such is the passion for it. Mt Eden Village is one of the few remaining genuine villages in the greater Auckland area. It is very well supported by an active community that are proud of and very interested in the area.
The village is renowned for its speciality food stores and is a very interesting part of Auckland.
The Mt Eden Business Association was formed in 1936, and twelve of the businesses included on the original constitution are still present in the Village.
